Bushrod is now a Bear

this is a discussion within the NFL Community Forum; Our line has been a revolving door for years. We'll be alright. Brown, Bushrod, Nicks, Grubbs, Faine, Goodwin, De La Puente, Stinchcomb, Strief, Brown, etc. We always manage to find the next "right" fit to continue to do what we ...

Our line has been a revolving door for years. We'll be alright.

Brown, Bushrod, Nicks, Grubbs, Faine, Goodwin, De La Puente, Stinchcomb, Strief, Brown, etc.

We always manage to find the next "right" fit to continue to do what we do. Goodluck to Bushrod... I'm glad he got paid.

Re: Bushrod is now a Bear

I am not at all happy with this. Good for Bushrod but Brees has made sure he will get the protection he deserves.

Re: Bushrod is now a Bear

Brown, even when healthy, is garbage. One of our worst draft picks since Sully. If we are relying on him to protect Brees, we are in deep sh*t.

Best of luck to Bushrod. He came out of nowhere, played really good football for us, and seemed to be a classy guy who represented the organization well. He's a good left tackle, not elite, but still gave us some reliability at that position. I disappointed he's gone.

Re: Bushrod is now a Bear

Bushrod got a LOT of negapinion on Black&Gold.
He did a great job and I'm glad he got his payday.
One or two bad days got stuck in peoples minds, but week in and week out he did his job.
He's not going to be crying to come back to NOLA even if he struggles with the Bears.
He'll just keep trying to help his new team while counting up to $35 million.
NOW we have to figure out how to "adequately" replace him on Brees' blindside.
It won't be easy and we definitely can't leave that door open and hope for good success.
I'm happy for him though I hate to see him go.
I hope I'm not missing him at all once the season starts.

Cutler better step up his release time. Drew makes O-linemen look better. They wouldn't let Bushrod go if they didn't have a plan in place. I thought we could keep him and I don't think Brown is the answer. Strief and Robinson...maybe.

Re: Bushrod is now a Bear

I tend to think that players (especially big fat lazy linemen) tend to regress once they get their big paydays. I like the idea of saving money and giving a hungry newcomer a chance.

Re: Bushrod is now a Bear

In my opinion, the only thing that made the Saints decision to let Jamaal Brown go look good, was the fact that he couldn't stay healthy. I think they saw that coming. But some people in here make it sound like Bushrod took over and played just as well as Brown, in his prime. He wasn't that good. He was serviceable, and needed a lot of help. We'll now replace him with the most serviceable OT we can afford, or possibly draft.

Look on our roster and tell me who any one of you see as remotely reliable? We are in a far worse situation at OT now than we were when Jamaal left. This "next man up" hoopla is foolishness. The Saints will definitely bring in someone. There isn't a next man up on this team.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.
